Cultured cockney, musician, impresario and punk-rock catalyst Malcom McLaren shares his personal vision of London, with observations, memories and anecdotes. A Soho resident with an impressive CV in music, fashion and art, McLaren is best known as the entrepreneurial force behind the Sex Pistols and as a purveyor of genre-bending early-80s pop, including the LP
Duck Rock and the singles Buffalo Gals, Double Dutch and Madam
Butterfly (Un Bel di Vedremo). He recalls a half-century of watersheds and movements in the capital, with an emphasis on street culture, a scene he claims is lost on today's more cyber-motivated youth. Producer Kate Bland
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
